In 2010 on my way home from Guyana, South America I made a stop over in Trinidad & Tobago. After volunteering in a remote village in Guyana for three weeks, I thought I should reward myself with some much deserved R & R. Tobago is my favorite of the two islands. It is much smaller with a very relaxed atmosphere. Although Tobago is small, it is the perfect destination for relaxation and tranquility or adventure (including ecotourism). During my stay, I rented a four by four and drove around the entire Island taking in all of the sights (it was my first time driving on the left side of the road!). I enjoyed learning about the history of Christopher Columbus in Tobago, tasting the Caribbean flavours in Scarborough, and snorkeling in one of the Caribbean’s best diving sites. Did you know that the island of Tobago is considered the island that possibly inspired the story Robinson Crusoe?
As you know, I love the beach so my favorite part was soaking up the sun at Pigeon Point and Englishman’s Bay. Englishman’s Bay is a secluded beach where few tourists venture and is considered Tobago’s most beautiful beach… where the sand and turquoise waters meet the rain forest. The sounds of tropical birds singing from a distance made me feel like I was in a dream. According to the Telegraph Englishman’s Bay is one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. Will you be visiting there?
